New Shipyard Opened In Moss Point, Miss

new shipyard, Moss Point Marine, Inc., has opened on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and will specialize in the construction of barges, utility boats, and pushboats, according to John Dane III, president. The new facility, on the East Pascagoula River near Moss Point, Miss., occupies a 17- acre site with 800 feet of water frontage with a 30-foot depth.

The yard's first vessel, a 180- foot barge with a 54-foot beam and 12-foot depth, is under construction now and is scheduled for delivery in November. Contracts for several other vessels are pending. "Because of our experienced personnel and smaller size, we are able to offer our customers high-quality construction, personalized attention, and ontime deliveries," said Mr. Dane.

Before forming Moss Point Marine, Mr. Dane had been assistant to the vice president, operations at Halter Marine, Inc., and facilities manager.

Burnice M. Havard is vice president of the new company. He had been shipyard superintendent at Halter Marine's Chickasaw, Ala., division. Other officers are Chalin 0. Perez Jr., secretary, and John Dane Jr., treasurer.

The mailing address of the new shipyard is P.O. Box 1310, Escatawpa, Miss. 39552; the telephone number is (601) 475-6885.
